Splendid bar and restaurant. I arrived on a Friday at opening and settled in with a few beers and lunch. Everything was top notch. The tap selection features ProPig beers as well as favourites from VT, QC and Belgium. The food is delicious with plentiful portions. Interesting bottle list and Heady Topper in cans. Service was fine but probably could of done with another bartender during lunch service. Pleasant atmosphere and the bar is lovely. Also a great whisky and spirit selection. All said, it was a great experience.

World class. The food is phenomenal, as is the beer selection. Lots of great Vermont beer. Great service, very professional and knowledgable. Pretty good prices considering the quality. Good ambiance, clean and stylish without being sterile or pretentious. If you are traveling through Waterbury and are hungry for a meal with good beer, this place is a must-visit.

I have visited a few times since the reopening of the late Alchemist (RIP) and the feel and crowd mostly remained the same which is very fortunate. They refocused on grilled foods and are being rather succesful at that albeit I was never as impressed as I was led to expect being with the food. My best plate ever was one with grilled shrimps that was a one-off Iíve never encountered again and all the rest pales in comparison. Service is always very helpful despite the immense popularity of the place and frequent waiting lines. The tap selection is not even the largest in town, but almost every time I visit, I feel like drinking 50%+ of whatís on offer which means that the quality level is very high indeed. Prices are also rather high though with serving sizes being especially small and not always with appropriate glasswares here, leading to pricey beers for Vermont. Iíve never even had to browse at the bottle list. Top notch spot, but my heart belongs to the BlackBack and as soon as Iím done with my plate, for all the great selection available at Prohibition Pig, thatís where I want to head to finish the evening.

Comments: Top notch cocktails and awesome food, great staff, love the ambiance, beer list was incredible but it was Hill Farmsteadís anniversary event so that skews it a little. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Kitty corner to two other bars featuring several up and coming Vermont beers. The largest and most bar like of the three. I also have a soft place in my heart to the former site of LíAlchemist. The bar and layout retains some of that flavour. More than enough taps for me here, and the HF and Lawson Liquid offerings were great. A few other good taps. One of my favourites on the trip was the dry hopped Ruination.

I had heard a lot about this place and needed to check it out. Finally found a couple of Lawsons Finest beers on tap here, along with several HF and other tasty beers. They have a hundred or so bottles as well. The pulled pork was pretty damn awesome, and service was quite good. Half pours were $3 and fulls were $5, making them a hell of a deal.

Large place, packed on a Saturday night. The exact same house beers as the brewery, but the rest of the draft list was solid, even though they were out of my first choice. Draft prices decent. Customer service was solid despite the crowd. I prefer the brewery side but this is a nice place.

Well, it is impossible not to be nostalgic when one walks in here. The setup is pretty much the same as The Alchemistís was, save for a few more tables in the back. Lots of former Alchemist employees as well. The aroma of smoked meat permeates the place; hard to complain, really. I didnít eat here the first time around, but I certainly will next time. The beer menu is large and includes Heady Topper, which is extremely rare on draft. (The only other place that has it for now is Hen of the Wood, also in Waterbury, one of New Englandís premier restaurants). Waterbury has so many great little bars for such a tiny town; Prohibition Pig is a strong contender from the get-go. Good job.

Heady on draft, half and full pours, a couple HF and a bunch of other local beers. This place is worth coming to drink. Our server was a bit slow and lost our food for an hour, but the food was great albeit with small portions. My fav spot in Waterbury.

The Prohibition Pig is now open. The basic set up of the old Alchemist still remains, with the long bar, and the bar-dinning separation, but gone are the pool table and the big corner table to make way for more dinning spots, the bathrooms are now bigger so no need to wait outside as before. The top no tap list is extensive with a mix of NE local (Hill, Lawson), other regions (Cigar City) and imports (Mikkeller, Grassroots). The place is a meat haven of pulled pork, ribs and burgers. Given the place was full on the night I visited, I didnít eat there, but will be back for sure. A lot of the old Alchemist crew are now working here. My goodness, Waterbury is beer central!!
